Thank You Scotty and Cheryl

Do you remember a post call "Ice Time" back in Janurary?

It tells about our wonderful friends with an outdoor ice rink that doubles as a curling rink with boards and lights and everything.
And remember the fire pit that I absolutly love......well at the fire pit they have chairs and rocks and barn beams to sit on. Of course I fell in love with the old barn beams and mentioned this to the owners. As sweet as they are, that spring Mr. Scotty showed up on my door step with a beam from his very own fire pit and insisted I take it.

Spring quickly turned into the end of summer and there sat the barn beam up against the house. Oh I knew exactly what I wanted it to look like, I just didn't make the time to do anything with it, and then it happened........ My Mr. took vacation.

When Mr.J takes vacation his favorite place to be is at home, Working, yes a capital "W" he works hard and is very efficient.  He likes to "get things done" as he puts it. Mr.J takes on many projects at once, major projects, and finishes everyone of them in a timely manner - my Mom always tells me how lucky I am and I know it.
With Mr.J's input we found a wonderful person that works with metal. After a meeting, drawings and a few emails we got exactly what we wanted. I love it, our new barn beam bench with metal strapping. It proudly sits in the kitchen against a mellow yellow wall and has instintly given the kitchen an edgy modern feel.

So thank you to Scotty and Cheryl for sharing and you have first seating rights on the barn beam bench.


P.S. - Vacation week Mr. J also repainted the master and re-decorated - photos to come.

  1. Thank you so much for all the kind words and we are SO happy that you have put that barn beam to good use. Scotty really loved what you've done and I know it would be his pleasure to give you more "wood" whenever you need it! Ha Ha Ha

    Love the Palmers!
